    Windows 10 snap feature no longer works

    This is weird because the snap and drag feature has worked perfectly until a couple of days ago. First of all, it is turned on. And it did work before. But it's easier to show instead of tell. So, here's a short Jing video: Windows will not snap together
    I'd love some help. Thanks.

    Hi, just an obvious thought- sorry if too obvious- check it's not turned off by any of the methods here:

    You could also try System Restore.

    Another diagnostic approach: create a new user for test purposes: does it work when logged in as the new user?

    1) Search for this settings window (using Search) [refer to picture] and open it.
    2) Make sure the last setting "Prevent windows from being automatically..." is UNchecked. If it's checked, then uncheck it, press Apply, and see if your issue is solved.
    3) If it's already unchecked, then check it, press Apply. After that, uncheck it and press Apply again. (This is in order to attempt to reset the setting). See if this did anything.
